Cool, compact and autonomous – this is how Audi imagines the vehicle for the megacity of tomorrow. At the Auto Shanghai 2019 show the Ingolstadt with the Audi AI: ME, what this could look like.
A spacious interior is of course mandatory when it is no longer primarily about driving a car. The concept car Audi AI: ME is ready for automated driving on level 4 – the inmates can meanwhile turn to other things, for example to relax or work. Thanks to the variable layout, the futuristic Audi can accommodate "2 + x" people, as stated in a statement by the car manufacturer. In the design of the interior, in addition to the access to mobile services, the topic "storage space" in particular has been reinterpreted – for example, metal dishes can be safely shut off by means of magnets.
The front armchairs are wide and designed for comfort. If the pedals are not used because the car finds its way alone through sensors and artificial intelligence, the driver can lay his feet on the pads under the dashboard. According to Audi, the seat position can be varied as required on the rear bench, which is pulled all the way to the side panels.
The AI: ME is 4.30 meters long and 1.90 meters wide, its wheelbase is 2.77 meters, the height 1.52 meters. The drive unit on the rear axle makes 125 kW / 170 hp.
